What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Fun, reliable, and big enough for the whole family

Against Base models don't have enough equipment and the interior plastics are dull. Car is uncommon, too

Verdict It's good to drive and one of the most practical superminis on the market

Go for… 1.25 S

Avoid… 1.6 Sport or Capella

Mazda 2 Hatchback
  • 1. If you're buying a diesel, ask about the fuel pipes - some people have had them replaced under warranty
  • 2. The handling is impressively sharp and the steering is accurate
  • 3. Space and practicality are better than you'll find in most other superminis
  • 4. The boot is fairly big for this class of car
  • 5. One of the few grumbles about the Mazda 2 is that the plastics are a bit dull
